Summary by Ground News
The Colorado River provides water to 40 million people across seven states in the American West as well as Mexico.

States along the Colorado River have officially missed a federally imposed deadline to develop a new water-sharing agreement. The federal government announced Tuesday that it will take the reins and reduce water allocations, including nearly 25 percent in cuts to Arizona.
